UN Environment Finance Initiative Regional Roundtable for Sustainable Finance in Europe

16/10/2017 (All day) - 18/10/2017 (All day)

The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is partnering with Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF) to hold the UNEP FI Regional Roundtable in Europe on 16 – 18 October 2017 in the Centre International de Conférences Genève (CICG Geneva), Switzerland. A partnership between UNEP FI and SSF helps bring together the networks of both associations for in-depth discussions, with the ambition to inspire and align international conversation.

In this landmark year of UNEP FI’s 25th anniversary, UNEP FI is building on the success of the Global Roundtable with the first series of Regional Roundtables. The Regional Roundtable in Europe will be held in Geneva, the home of UNEP FI secretariat. The Roundtable will provide an opportunity for actors in the sustainable finance community to come together from across Europe to discuss the latest trends and innovations, and share good practice. At this crucial gathering of regional sustainable finance leaders, participants will identify ways for the finance community to become catalysts for sustainable, climate-resilient development.

Sustainable finance is at a critical juncture in Europe, with the EU High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance gaining traction on integrating environmental, social and governance issues into the financial system, and enabling banks, insurers and asset managers to take a stronger role in leading the growth of sustainable finance.

Please note that registration will close on Friday, 6 October.
